Nest box week is soon and I saw some boxes on offer, so I snapped a couple up. It’s a good time to be getting bird boxes up.
There was a fabric hinge at the back of them, so we took that off and just screwed the roof on; it’s easy enough to unscrew a few more screws to take the lid off when we need to, and the hinge probably wouldn’t have lasted.
We also added nest box plates to keep predators out, and I painted the outside them.
I think they’ve turned out nicely. One of these will replace a very old box in our birch tree, and I’m not sure where the other will go yet, perhaps somewhere on our patio cover construction.
I’ve also stocked up on nesting wool to offer the birds, so I’m almost all set for nesting time 😀
Are you ready?
